MILAN —

The Italian Foreign Ministry says that four Italian journalists have been detained in Syria.

The Foreign Ministry on Saturday said that they are in touch with the families of the journalists but declined to say who have detained them or release further details out of concern for their safety.

Italian media have reported that the four are a RAI public television reporter and three freelancers who had entered Syria earlier this month with the intention of working by day in Syria and crossing into Turkey in the evening. They were first reported detained in northern Syria near the Turkish border on Friday.
